? >> if you look at technology, there is some technology we could look at and we are always in this dialogue -- is there some new mechanism we could put forward. one of the challenges is consumers will often talk about two or three different accounts on the front page of the letter. we cannot send bank of america information about citigroup or another lender. we need to parse before the letter. one of the legal issues we have, as a matter of law, is how to unpacked important communications sowed data can be sent from one party to another if it will advance the ball beyond the coating systems we have today. we think we are getting it right. most of the letters come in and they said that is not my account or they say i net -- i never missed a 30-day payment. more consumers are choosing to dispute directly with their lender. >> even if the lender is not the furniture? >> lender would be the furniture. through the fact act, a push for the idea that i should have this right under law. we see more consumers with complicated issues going to the lender to resolve the issue and that's why you will co

of some of the work that i did, information technology, hardware. whatever it takes, we of the to dedicate resources. you cannot get the results you want just by yelling and screaming. you have got to have investment and resources. the third point i want to make, your credibility as the department would be greatly enhanced by the pace of implementation, but it demonstrable success you have. taxpayers can see the you have made those changes. and by the steps your taking now and in the next couple of days and weeks. that is most important for the greater concerns we have, but especially important when you come back here and ask for dollars. i will stand with anyone to say that resources matter. i know that from personal experience. but your credibility would be enhanced when you ask for those resources if you can specifically focus on what those resources will go for and how you're going to be able to change the dynamic. i do not have much time. let me ask a question that i am not sure it has been raised yet. number one, host country cooperation. another is great variance. there is great var
